Berenice Bejo Awarded Best Actress at Cannes

(Cannes) – French actress Berenice Bejo won best actress at the Cannes Film Festival for her turn in Iranian director Asghar Farhadi’s film “The Past” for which she turned down Hollywood parts. Bejo, 36, who was catapulted to international stardom with the hit French silent movie “The Artist”, plays a wife who asks her estranged husband to return from Iran to finalize their divorce.
After the ceremony, the actress said she was touched by the award but felt uncomfortable at the idea of taking credit for Oscar winner Farhadi’s Paris-set family drama. “It is special to get a best performance prize; it is for me and I cannot imagine getting something just for me. I would be nothing if there weren’t other actors, the director photography, and all the members of the crew,” she told.
